Artist Statement Submitted 2020I work in two main styles. My Street Scenes as I call them reflect the world around me. I am deeply connected to these paintings because they are the sole means to which I support myself and care for my needs. Until covid-19 I lived in the French Quarter for many years. These street scenes are not just paintings, they are my world.
My other style I call the Reconstruction Series. This work allows me to get more experimental. I do several similar paintings on paper. I then cut up the paintings and intermix the pieces. “Double Combined Selfie Portrait” is made from two paintings of two selfies I took of myself. These paintings embody a strong belief I hold, that bringing together different perspectives make for a stronger society.
